Ranked: The Women Literally Running the Planet

This article first appeared on the Atlantic, i thought it was an interesting read considering Nigeria's own Ngozi Okonjo Iweala is grouped along side these powerful women, standing strong, holding her own in th International Polity. It’s been a tough week or two for the world’s women. First, no woman became UN secretary general. Then Donald Trump threatened to grab them by something that was heretofore unprintable. And now no women have won Nobel prizes. And yet there are women who have literally been running the world this whole time. The most prominent examples are marquee leaders like German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Theresa May, but they’re far from alone. Here are five other women on top of the world.

Regardless of the severity of the corruption allegations against the judges what is the position of the law on this matter.

Dark Twisted Fantasy

GREED that five letter word takes a life of its own, Its tentacles reaching out from beneath my skin grasping at the strings of my soul, My legs are compelled by the force of its energy, driving me like strong winds into the dark waters. Caution thrown to the wind, aggression boiling my blood over. The light that had shown from my eyes have turned a blistering red. My actions like sharp twisted fangs are wrought with the direction of its Lust.
